(Update) Mafia Twitter account returns with mysterious teaser


'I'm gonna go get the papers, get the papers'

[Update: The Mafia Twitter account has dropped a second teaser today, simply tweeting out the word "Power." At this rate, it seems 2K Games will be showing its hand very soon.]

The official Twitter account for Mafia has sprung back to life after two years of dormancy, adding further fuel to the fire that 2K Games has incoming announcements regarding the open-word crime sim series.

Yesterday, after two years of silence, @mafiagame tweeted out a single word: "Family", probably suggesting something altogether more sinister than your average Mother's Day blessing. There has been a flurry of whispers and rumours regarding the Mafia series recently, with "Definitive Editions" of both Mafia 2 and Mafia 3 showing up on Taiwan's video game ratings board. This is not to mention the long-time whisper that Mafia 2 is in consideration to receive the remake/remaster treatment.

Whatever 2K Games has up its sleeve, the reactivation of the Twitter account would suggest we'll be hearing some more concrete (shoes) news real soon. Until then, keep your eyes open and your mouth shut, because you got a beautiful restaurant here, Capiche?
